Stewards of the Sea
The Stewards of the Sea: Defending Freedom, Protecting the Environment exhibit opened on March 13, 2014, and is located on the 3rd Floor of the Nauticus in Norfolk, Virginia. The 1,000-square foot exhibit is a dynamic display that showcases how the U.S. Navy protects the environment while operating at sea.

Through the use of hands-on activities, games, videos, and immersive scenarios, visitors can:

  • Scan the horizon through giant “Big Eye” binoculars to look for whales, dolphins, or manatees

  • Pretend to be a Sailor looking for enemy submarines using sonar

  • Hear what marine mammal, man-made, and natural sounds are like underwater

  • Learn how whales are tagged and monitored

  • See scientific equipment used by the Navy to study the ocean environment

  • Learn about environmental careers in the Navy  |  |  Navy FOIA  |  DoD Accessibility/Section 508  |  No Fear Act  |  Open Government  |  Plain Writing Act  |  Veterans Crisis Line  |  DoD Safe Helpline  |  Navy SAPR  |  NCIS Tips  |  Privacy Policy  |  Contact US
